Fun With Creationist Logic
[Via Dispatches from the Culture Wars]
I saw this on Fundies Say the Darnedest Things and it’s hilarious. In a forum discussion about stellar distances and the age of the earth, one creationist wrote:
Here is a question you.
So a light year = the distance light travels in a year.
You mentioned the figure 11 million light years away.
So my question is how are we observing this light 11 million light years away now?
I’m not 11 million years old, i’m 20.
When someone pointed out that the light actually left the star 11 million years ago, the poor sap still didn’t get it:
If it takes 11 million years to travel to earth, how can i see it now? I’m only 20.
If it takes 11 million years to travel to earth then the viewer would need to be 11 million years old.
That person, presumably, has the right to vote.
Hard to know where he got off track so badly.
One thought on “My brain hurts from trying to figure this out”
